Self-love—by way of deliberate daily self-care—is a clear path to spiritual strength. That is my truth.
For me, there is a connection between my spiritual needs and my self-care practice. This book offers several opportunities to activate self-love, with the intention of strengthening your connection to God through deliberate daily self-care. One might say that self-love should not need to be activated, and should instead be readily available and naturally occurring.
To that, I’d say self-love is just like breathing. We don’t have to think about breathing for it to happen; it is natural. However, there is an undeniable chance to regain our sense of personal power when we remember—especially when we are afraid or anxious—to take a long, deliberate, deep breath.
As natural as breathing already is, taking leadership of that process —especially when part of you wants to Hulk out and just be mad out loud—can offer such a simple way to reconnect with our ability to do more than just react to a situation.
It is okay to activate self-love. And perhaps, it is more than okay; maybe the skill is what helps us turn self-love into something we can feel and focus on, which is self-care.
For me, spirituality is how I activate self-love, taking it from an idea in my head to a real part of my daily experiences. Daily experiences with spiritual exploration help me stay connected to my barometer for self-care. This means, for example, that I’m less likely to get sick before I realize I need to make time for myself outside of my family or my work. I use rituals to root myself in my spiritual beliefs, and I’m using this to share those rituals.
This is basically a book about rituals for everyday people. Rituals are basically habits we’re aware of. We brush our hair and our teeth ritualistically. We can get in our cars and drive to certain places without even having to pay attention to the route. We are creatures of habit, and these pages will encourage you to begin paying closer attention to your habits, and adding intention and desire to the habits you want to keep.
I took a minimalist approach to this book. Some chapters are personal narratives. Others will prompt you to ask yourself several questions. Others will call for you to put the book away and be with your own intuition. This book won’t read like a novel, nor will it operate as a workbook. It’s a bit of both; Strategy and Soulwork designed to walk you inward, toward yourself, and toward a stronger, more empowering relationship with God.
